One of the world's most endangered birds the Spix's Macaw, or also known as the Little Blue Macaw, is starting to make a comeback. The plight of the Spix's Macaw was highlighted in the popular children's film, Rio. These birds once extinct in the wild, have just been released back into the wild. In this week's podcast we highlight the plight of the Spix's Macaw, what caused their decline, and who is responsible for bringing them back. Native to Brazil, the Spix's Macaw was extinct in the wild for over two decades. Yet, private collectors around the world were able to keep the species alive. Coming together, these collectors and other organizations have collaborated to save them. A very heartwarming story!
